Innovative Educational Technology Programs in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Trucano, Michael
Childhood Education, v93 n5 p364-367 2017
For many people, the use of technology in education constitutes a de facto "innovation." Whether or not this belief is actually accurate, or useful, is a legitimate question for discussion. That said, there is no denying that many of the educational innovations celebrated (or at least touted) today are enabled by the use of such technologies in some way. Around the world, there are few more conservative and traditional sectors than those related to public education. In many ways this is totally understandable, and appropriate. Investments in education represent investments in the future--of our children, of our future citizens and workers and leaders and community members. In this article, the author discusses the statistics of how much educational technology is taught in low- and middle-income countries and highlights resources where one can locate these program. The author also highlights emerging themes and technology models that the Center for Education Innovations has identified.
